You're Miles Above the Rest

Here's another sweet design featuring a set from the recent release at The Cat's Pajamas.  I paired the adorable hot air ballooning big eared bunny from the new Drop In set with a loose interpretation of the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

You're Miles Above the Rest card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's Pajamas
I colored the bunny with Copic markers.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may just recognize this bunny from one of my posts a few days ago . . .  Once he was colored, I adhered him to a blue card base using foam tape.  I die cut a fluffy cloud from shimmery white cardstock using the new CutUps Stitched Clouds die (free right now with a $65 purchase!) and tucked it underneath the raised balloon. 

For the sentiment, I turned to an older TCP set, Oh Chute.  I stamped "you're miles above the rest" on a yellow banner strip cut with a die from the CutUps Framed Up 2 set and added it to the card, overlapping the balloon just a tiny bit.  I thought about addign a few sequins as an accent around the cloud and balloon, but in the end, decided to keep the design super simple. 

Materials Used:
Drop In and Oh Chute stamp sets, CutUps Stitched Cloud and Framed Up 2 dies (The Cat's Pajamas); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Cool Caribbean, Yoyo Yellow, and Shimmery White cardstock (Stampin' Up!); foam tape
